** Later, during the song "Gaston", while Gaston is singing about how he ate eggs as a lad, the Bimbettes are seen leaning on the bar watching Gaston admiringly. The one in red appears to be ... bouncing her butt up and down.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: No one fails gun safety like Gaston! He's the best hunter in town, so he should know better than to point his gun at the woman he wants to marry.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: No one fails gun safety like Gaston! He's Gaston, supposedly the best hunter in town, so he should know better than declares his intent to point marry Belle by pointing his gun at her. Not a good idea. It is true that his blunderbuss had recently been discharged and should have been empty, but later in the woman film he wants demonstrates that the blunderbuss is fully automatic, which presents another problem entirely. This is in addition to marry.the fact that his first scene shows him birding in the middle of town, where any missed shot could end up hitting someone down the street. Which raises the question of why Gaston is considered the local paragon of manliness rather than a public menace.

* RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic: Averted several times, The Beast noticeably stutters when he gets angry and Belle sometimes repeats herself when emotional.

* Foil: Beast to Gaston, as the pair are polar opposites.
** Gaston is handsome, vain, beloved by the town, yet is in reality is a brutal psychopath who cares about no one except himself. The Beast, in contrast, may appear to be a thoughtless monster, feared by practically everyone, but is in reality a kind hearted individual capable of acts of selflessness and bravery.
** Evident in how the pair treat Belle. Gaston shows up at her house expecting to propose and marry her on the same day, expecting that she will just accept his offer without a second thought. Gaston tries to win her over by telling her how she'd serve him, and doesn't give a second thought to what she wants or what she would be interested in. Beast, in contrast, wants to do something nice for her, so he gives her access to the castle's vast library which plays right into her interests.

* {{Badass}}: The Beast -- who else can handle a pack of hungry wolves and get away with only a scratch ?
** Belle: Do not fuck with Belle.
** Even Philippe - Belle's horse - gets one. The look on his face as he bursts into the castle with Belle! WOO!
** Gaston. He's a villain, all right, but he's also an expert hunter who never miss a shot both with a rifle and an arrow.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Nobody masters this trope like Gaston! He at first seems to be an arrogant, uneducated and unintellectual buffoon. The first hint that there's more to him than that comes as he skulks away from Belle's house after his unsuccessful proposal (complete with moody music to give us a clue). Then later on in the movie he turns out to be a manipulative, deceitful and cunning psychopath. However, he's still got some obvious stupidity, as no one with half a brain cell would challenge a seven-foot-tall chimera monster to fisticuffs over a woman who doesn't even remotely like him.

* DisneyAcidSequence: "Be Our Guest", as noted under Artistic License, streches the boundaries of what's possible. However, compared to other Disney examples, it is a DownplayedTrope.

** Meanwhile, nobody in-universe does this better than Gaston! To elaborate: basically, Gaston gets rejected by a cute girl (Belle). So his response is to sulk in a bar, then start a riot, and then rile the villagers into joining him to murder the Beast.

** The Beast is a deconstruction of the character from the original tale who was kind and gentlemanly despite his monstrous appearance. Here the loss of his humanity as well as [[ImpossibleTask the impossible nature of his task]] only serve to drive him deep into depression and seclusion. He gives up hope of ever breaking the spell and begins to give into his beastly urges: stops wearing clothes, hunting for his food, and becoming fiercely territorial. If Belle hadn't come along ''exactly'' when she did, he would have never broken the spell and become an animal completely.
